NATIONAL HEALTH SURVEY
Summary results from the 2001 National Health Survey (NHS) will be published in National Health Survey: Summary of Results, 2001 (Cat. no. 4364.0) due for release in October 2002. The NHS collected information about the health status of Australians, their use of health services and facilities and health-related aspects of their lifestyle. Topics include general health and wellbeing, long-term medical conditions and recent injuries; visits to hospitals and day clinics; consultations with doctors, dentists and other health professionals; and use of medications and immunisation. A range of state tables are also planned for release on the ABS Web Site following the release of the summary publication.
